Iran, Russia, Turkey Agree Ditching US Dollar in Mutual Transactions

Alwaght- Iran's national currency Rial gained as much as 25 percent to 135,000 per dollar on Monday sending individual owners of the US currency to foreign currency markets on night to sell their dollars  

The greenback started the day at close to 180,000 against Rial, however, it dropped to as low as Rials 161,000 before noon and eventually settled at Rials 135,000 at the end of trading – a level not seen since early September.

Some reports also said some street dealers were buying the hard currency from individual owners at rates as low as around roals 120,000.

Videos circulating on the social media quoted dealers as predicting that the US dollar rate would go down even further to less than IRR 100,000 on Tuesday.

Monday’s strengthening of the Rial against the dollar came shortly after Iran’s Judiciary handed down death sentences to three people convicted of several charges of economic corruption including causing disturbance in the country’s foreign exchange market.

Iran's judiciary hands down death sentences to three people convicted of economic corruption.

Over the past months, Iran has taken several other measures to reduce its vulnerability to US economic sanctions specifically the depreciation of its Rial.

In early August, the government of President Hassan Rouhani unveiled a much-awaited package of policies to strengthen the Rial.

The package, which was unveiled by the Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdolnasser Hemmati, most importantly comprised mechanisms to control the US dollar rates through a recently launched “secondary currency market.”

Based on CBI’s package of currency policies, export revenues in dollars excluding oil would have to be presented to buyers in the secondary market.

Furthermore, the CBI would no longer be involved in determining the dollar exchange rates – what critics argued had only resulted in producing “unrealistic rates” for the greenback. Instead, the exchange rate would be pegged to the actual trading figures as obtained from transactions between suppliers and buyers in the secondary foreign currency market.

Accordingly, the secondary currency market would enable “minor importers” to buy their required dollars from exporters of certain non-oil products. Besides, the price of the dollar would be set according to the supply and demand balance in the market.
